Navy Chief Brig. Gen. Rani Ben-Yehuda on Tuesday said that no weapons were found aboard the Gaza-bound French ship that was intercepted earlier in the day by the Navy and that it also was not carrying any humanitarian aid.

The Navy commandeered and intercepted the French ship after negotiations to persuade 15 pro-Palestinian activists aboard to divert their course away from the Strip's closed naval blockade failed.
